The ICO exists to empower you through information.

Please note the resource on this page is in a testing phase. We’ve written it for small businesses and we’ll develop it based on their feedback. To share your feedback if you’re a small business, please fill in our survey.


ICO staff have annual information governance training. We’ve taken the training our staff receive and adapted it for use by small businesses.

We’re here to help. You can use the resource on this page to give your staff an overview of data protection and train them on how to handle personal data correctly. Alternatively, take the parts that are relevant to your business and add them to your existing training material.

Everyone in your business is responsible for data protection, and it’s important they know what to do. You should make sure your training fits the needs of your business.
